Sime Darby's Subang Jaya City Centre project gets council waiver

The MPSJ monthly full board meeting was embroiled in a verbal tussle today when councillors deliberated an approval granted to the Subang Jaya City Centre project owner, Sime Darby.

Councillor Rajiv Rishyakaran noted that Subang Jaya assemblywoman Hannah Yeoh had yet to peruse the new traffic circulation plan proposed by Sime Darby when the council's One Stop Center (OSC) committee had approved it.

Sime Darby presented the plan to Yeoh two weeks ago, seeking a waiver of a condition that requires it to build a flyover in its SS16 project site, and pledged to replace it with some other traffic measures.

Yeoh, in reply, asked for a copy of the proposal and promised to give her feedback in a week.

Hence, Rishyakaran (right) cried foul that OSC should not have waived the condition from Sime Darby without Yeoh's consent.

"I hope we can withhold the decision until Yeoh studies the case," he said.

Council president, Asmawi Kasbi, however defended the move, saying that the developer had already proved that building a flyover is technically impossible on the site.

"The flyover will cross paths with the LRT extension," he said, adding that MPSJ will explore alternatives.

Rishyakaran then urged the council to take the issue seriously, as Ikram (Public Works Institute of Malaysia) has warned that traffic conditions in SS16 will deteriorate to F-class should there be unbridled development in the area.


Councillor Ismail Kamal Abdul Raman also asked the OSC to defer the approval, but Asmawi (right) finally passed it.

SJCC is a 13.75 acres integrated development with shophouses, apartments, LRT station and office blocks.

Sime Darby was initially asked to build a flyover between Persiaran Jengka and Persiaran Kemajuan and two roundabouts as the conditions imposed for the project's approval.

Talking to Komunitikini later, Rishyakaran said there was no reason for the council to have rushed in waiving the condition.

"If you exclude the condition now, you can't add on another later," he said.

"Now it's too late; we got nothing to bargain with Sime Darby already," he added.

Dissecting Teoh Beng Hock RIC report

Posted: 24 Aug 2011 08:31 AM PDT

English translation of my column article which originally published in China Press on August 24.

2 years ago, Selangor MACC informed us that they have released Teoh Beng Hock around 3:45 a.m., 16th July. 2 years later, the RCI report disclosed that after the 3rd round of interrogation, although Beng Hock’s statement has been recorded, he was not released for the following reasons (para. 167 of the RCI report).

1.Beng Hock was forcibly taken to the MACC office for interrogation. Under such circumstances, it is very difficult to believe that he would happily stay back in the MACC office for even 1 more minute upon release. The truth was, Beng Hock did ask a MACC officer named Sachi when he could go home. We can see that Beng Hock was very eager to go home.

2.Throughout the interrogation process, MACC always cross check separate statements from different witnesses. In other words, before Tan Boon Wah and Lee Wye Wing completed recording their statements, MACC would never let Beng Hock leave. Lee Wye Wing only finished having his statement recorded at 5 a.m. while Tan Boon Wah’s interrogation session lasted until 11:00a.m. hence there was no way Beng Hock was released at 3:45a.m.

3.It was also noted that upon having their statement recorded, Tan Boon Wah and Lee Wye Wing were not immediately released hence MACC’s assertion that “witness can leave immediately after having their statement taken” do not hold ground.

4.Before a witness is released, MACC would normally issue an official notice to request the witness to return with specific documents to assist with investigation but MACC did not issue such notice to Beng Hock hence MACC’s assertion that Beng Hock was released has been proven as false.

5.In June 2009, there was instances where visitors walked into MACC offices without permission and the then Deputy Director of Selangor MACC Hishammuddin issued an order that all witnesses and visitors must be accompanies by MACC officers during the duration they are in MACC office. Therefore, after his interrogation, Beng Hock must have been accompanied by a MACC officer. In other words, since Beng Hock was not released then there must have been a 4th interrogation. RCI deduced that the 4th interrogation occurred between 3:30a.m. till 6:00a.m. The officer responsible for interrogation was the main director of Ops DUN, the Deputy Director of Selangor MACC Hishammuddin.

At this point, I wish to remind everyone that 2 weeks ago, I pointed out the following points in my column: Why did MACC lie 2 years ago that Beng Hock was released at 3:45a.on June 16th? If Beng Hock committed suicide, why did MACC have to conceal the fact that they carried out a 4th interrogation on Beng Hock between 3:30a.m. till 6:00a.m.? What really happened between 3:30a.m. till 6:00a.m.?

Next week, I shall elaborate further on the role of Hishammuddin in this investigation.

Comment on Perutusan Hari Raya Kpd Khazanah & YB Tan Sri Nor Yacob by Economist Kampong

Dear YB

Saya harap YB dapat cadangkan 2 perkara berikut,

1. Parlimen tubuhkan sebuah jawatankuasa, seperti PAC, untuk meneliti dan meluluskan semua jualan asset-asset GLC, dan

2. Pengerusi dan juga MD Khazanah mestilah dilantik dari kalangan AHli Parlimen yang telah di pilih oleh rakyat.

Orang macam Azman Yahya tidak boleh di harap untuk menjaga harta negara. Dia cuma loyal (taat) kepada PM yang melantiknya.

Terima kaseh

9) Adakah perjanjian ini diadakan demi kebaikan MAS atau kerana kecekapan sesetengah pihak yang pandai melobi?

I think the question had its answer at 2nd part. MAS, from those days always in kerugian. Added by TR’s … What else? Inefficiency of management. Memang tak pandai berniaga. If one want to be in business, must understand the art of business. Selok belok berniaga. AA X understand that. We don’t have to blame Khazanah or whoever, cermin diri sendiri. Are we competence enough to be in the business.

Its been a while since I last noticed an elected parliamentarian who truly uphold his words to ‘serve the peoples interest first’ and to stand firm on his ground to what matters most.

Batalkan perjanjian dengan AirAsia X Sdn Bhd. AA X adalah syarikat swasta kenapa Khazanah perlu membeli sahamnya. Dan AA X mengalami kerugian RM90 juta. jangan bodoh sangat. Jagalah wang rakyat dengan baik.

Bloody share swap. Khazanah itself better do a share swap over its share with AirAsia since airAsia and Airasia X Sdn bhd are great companies. Better sill, Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar and Danny resign and put TF as its Managing director and Datuk Kamarudin as its executive director to sit on MAS. Then it will be a perfect share swap of the century.

Comment on Issues for your MP by Fathi Ahmad SHah

Posted: 24 Aug 2011 12:29 AM PDT

YB, saya dan ramai rakan-rakan lain bersetuju dan menyokong perjuangan YB untuk memastikan bahawa sebarang deal antara Airasia dan MAS hendaklah memastikan keuntungan kepada Negara dan bukannya kepada syarikat perniagaan individu.

Harap YB dapat membawa isu ini ke Parliment dan membongkar hidden agenda berkepentingan sendiri.

Ramai yang was-was berhubung deal ini, ia lebih banyak memberi faedah intengible kepada Airasia, terutama apabila perjanjian ini menaikkan harga IPO AIrasia X dan memberi keyakinan kepada pelabur asing tentang masa depan airasia X, dan yang lucunya, khazanah kemudia akan membeli share Airasia x, padahal kerana perjanjian dengan MAS yang menyebabkan harga IPO airasia X bernilai tinggi, sepatutnya khazanah diberi discount untuk memiliki share airasia X.


On paper dan ayat yang digunakan memang nampak cantik dan bagus..tetapi nampak macam ada yang meragukan.

1) Kenapa Nilai pertukaran saham disandarkan berdasarkan nilai spekulasi bukan berdasarkan nilai aset dan hutang kedua-dua syarikat…cuba perhatikan pergerakan saham…semasa perbincangan sedang dijalankan saham Airasia meningkat naik dan dan saham Mas meningkat turun…ini bermakna bahawa ketika penentuan harga saham, saham airasia tinggi dan Mas rendah dan ini menjadi faktor utama kenapa Tune Air mendapat 20.5 peratus dalam MAS dan MAS cuma mendapat 10% dalam Airasia…dan selepas perjanjian itu saham Airasia turun (nilai pegangan khazanah turun tetapi saham MAS naik, nilai pegangan Tune Air Naik…Tony untung)
2) Air Asia X mengalami persoalan tentang ketentuan dalam operasi masa depan mereka dan menjadi halangan dalam usaha mereka untuk menyenaraikan Air Asia X dan bagi mendapat harga yang baik, Perjanjian ini telah membantu Air Asia X memecahkan kebuntuan ini dengan mencanagkan kepada pelabur luar bahawa mereka mempunyai masa depan yang cerah terutama berjaya mematikan persaingan dari MAS, serta harapan cerah untuk mendapat hak pendaratan.

3)Agak aneh apabila 2 pegawai Eksekutif Airasia , dilantik menduduki jawatankuasa Exco MAS. Adakah khazanah percaya dan yakin bahawa kedua-dua mereka akan membuat keputusan yang lebih menguntungkan MAS dari Airasia apabila perlu membuat sesuatu keputusan kritikal yang melibatkan kedua-dua pihak pernerbangan.Dimana dalam pihak perngurusan dan eksekutif tertinggi Airasia tiada ada seorang pun wakil MAS yang mempunyai kuasa untuk memastikan bahawa keputusan dalam Airasia tidak merugikan atau bersaing dengan MAS.

4) Dari segi apakah yang MAS dapat manafaat dari AIRASIA, secara umum hampir semua bidang kolibrasi dengan nyata MAS mempunyai kelebihan berbandingan dengan Airasia.

5)Adakah ini bermakna bahawa firefly tidak akan menjadi penerbangan komuniti tambang murah? Maka Airasia berjaya melenyapkan persaing mereka, dengan cara mengubah konsep syarikat penerbangan firefly dengan menggunakan cadangan datang dari khazanah atau Exco pengurusan MAS.

6)Apakah perjanjian ini betul betul memberi manafaat kepada MAS atau lebih kepada menjadi tunggangan Tune Air untuk mencapai impian besar mereka.

7)Sekiranya sekarang ini saya masih boleh berpeluang untuk terbang dengan menggunakan MAS pada harga yang lebih rendah dari Airasia dan mendapat layanan 5 bintang, adakah dengan perjanjian ini maka MAS hanya untuk mereka yang membayar harga premiuem sahaja? Adakah ini bermakna rakyat biasa sukar menaiki syarikat penerbangan negara melainkan membayar harga premium?
8)Adakah firefly masih dibenarkan menawarkan harga tiket rendah seperti sekarang yang nyata lebih baik dari AIRASIA dan masih memberi khidmat dan layanan yang lebih baik dari AIRASIA.(Snack,minuman,check-in barangan,ketepatan waktu)

9)Adakah perjanjian ini diadakan demi kebaikan MAS atau kerana kecekapan sesetengah pihak yang pandai melobi?

10)Adakah Wakil Airasia didalam pengurusan MAS boleh berlaku jujur dan ikhlas untuk menguntungkan MAS dengan mengorbankan keuntungan peribadi, Kerana wakil Airasia akan mendapat lebih untung jika keputusan yang dibuat memenangkan AIRASIA, apalah dengan pegangan 20.5% dalam MAS jika dibandingkan dengan pegangan meraka dalam airasia, Ini jelas conflict of interest.

.Tony tidak akan bersetuju untuk membernarkan firefly meneruskan konsep yg sedia ada, ini adalah demi kebaikan Airasia bukan untuk kebaikan firefly.
MAS terlalu lebih mantap dari segi jaringan dan networking,cuma MAS tak cekap melobi dan “boost” macam Tony. Even Tony mengaku sebelum ini beliau sibuk meloby..sekarang baru nak buat kerja.

Selamat berjuang YB.

Nota: Saya memohon maaf kerana saya mengeluarkan no talipon sdr dari komen untuk mengelakkan panggilan-panggilan tidak diingini.

Sepertimana kebanyakkan persoalan lain berhubung dengan isu Gereja DUMC, dakwaan Papa Gomo bahawa saya menghalang Gereja berkenaan disita oleh MBPJ adalah merupakan satu pembohongan. Dia mendakwa bahawa saya pada 11 Ogos telah menghubungi MBPJ dan menghalang operasi menyita Gereja tersebut sejurus sebelum pihak penguat-kuasa MBPJ dan Polis bersiap-sedia untuk melakukannya. Walaubagaimanapun, pembohongan semasa bulan Ramadhan yang mulia tidak merupakan masalah bagi pihak UMNO dan budak suruhan mereka. Mereka menganggap keMelayuan mereka adalah perisai yang menjadikan mereka kebal terhadap kemurkaan Allah! Apalah hendak dibandingkan satu pembohongan berbanding hadiah mangkuk tandas? Akhlak mereka amat membinggungkan.

Laporan Polis bertarikh 16 Ogos oleh En. Mohd. Fauzi, Pengarah Jabatan Penguatkuasa dan Keselamatan MBPJ jelas mendedahkan sifat pembohong golongan ini terutamanya Papa Gomo. Saya difahamkan bahawa walaupun pembohongannya telah terdedah, Papa Gomo tetap mempertahankan kenyataannya dan menyatakan kesanggupan dirinya untuk berjuang habis-habisan. Baguslah jika begitu, kerana saya pun berpendirian sedemikian.

Oleh yang demikian, bagi memulakan 'perjuangan' ini, saya ingin memohon supaya Papa Gomo menyatakan nama penuh, nombor kad pengenalan dan alamat penuhnya supaya dapat saya minta peguam saya untuk menyaman beliau dalam isu ini. Maka saya berharap agar rakannya yang membaca blog saya boleh menyampaikan permohonan saya ini kepadanya.

Sekiranya tiada jawapan darinya, maka semakin jelas, 'bravadonya' juga merupakan satu pembohongan. Namun, ianya tidak bererti bahawa saya tidak boleh dapatkan segala maklumat yang saya perlukan dari sumber lain dan oleh itu, tidak bererti bahawa dia akan semestinya terlepas. Hanya saya ingin memberinya peluang untuk dirinya membuktikan 'keberaniannya'; itupun kalau beranilah.

Ex-US Ambassador’s Disclosures Show Up Malaysia’s ‘Dirty Politics’

Posted: 24 Aug 2011 02:14 AM PDT

Malaysia Chronicle

Prime Minister Najib Razak and wife Rosmah Mansor have a lot to answer to. Already overflowing in scandal over massive corruption and ordered by the court to testify in Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy trial, for which he has accused them of plotting, a former US ambassador has dropped a bombshell.

John Malott, now the president of the Japan-America Society of Washington DC, was in charge of the mission in Kuala Lumpur from 1995 to 1998. He told of how Najib had struck an alliance and understanding with Anwar, who was then deputy prime minister, and how Najib later betrayed Anwar.

Both leaders were from the ruling party UMNO, whose members were then restless and unhappy with the ham-fisted ways of Mahathir Mohamad, the prime minister who ruled Malaysia from 1981 to 2003.

“When I was in KL, Najib's personal think tank was called the Malaysian Strategic Research Centre, or MSRC. MSRC basically was two people, Rohanna Mahmood and Razak Baginda. Rohanna told me that Najib and Anwar had reached a secret agreement. When Mahathir was gone, Anwar would be PM and Najib would be Deputy PM. That was the deal,” John Malott wrote in his article published in Malaysia Chronicle on Tuesday.

“That never happened, of course. When the going got tough, Najib stood by, and let Anwar go to jail.”

Indeed, sensing a shift in the wind, the wily Mahathir gathered together his trusted lieutenants including former Finance minister Daim Zainuddin and slapped on sodomy and graft charges against a stunned Anwar, who was then the darling of the Malay community and UMNO grassroots. This was the modus operandi Mahathir was accused of using to nip in the bud potential attempts by Anwar to challenge him at upcoming party elections.

Nuked until he could never stand up again

Malott revealed even more shocking information in his article entitled Malott drops a bombshell: A secret pact between Najib and Anwar.

Razak Baginda, who years later acted as a negotiator for Najib in the RM7 billion Scorpene submarines purchase, told a US embassy staff that a decision had been made to “nuke” Anwar until he could “never stand up again politically."

Baginda told a senior Embassy officer, "The decision has been made. They are going to "nuke" Anwar politically for all time to come. "Until he can never stand up again politically."

After that, a senior officer in the Special Branch told an Embassy officer, "We are going to keep filing charge after charge after Anwar so he will be in jail for the next hundred years."

“Can there be any doubt about what was going on then – and what is going on now?” said Malott, describing the onslaught by Anwar’s enemies as a “political decision”.

The ex-Ambassador’s startling revelations rang a bell for Chua Jui Meng, who in the late 1990s, was the BN Health minister.

“Yes, I remember Malott, he was a very active ambassador. He visited me in my ministry and never struck me as being pro-Anwar. He gave a lot of time to the other departments in the government as well. There was no reason to be pro-Anwar anway. I think Malott is cheesed off at what’s happening now because this took place when he was around and was privy to a lot of top-level information,” Jui Meng, now a PKR vice president, told Malaysia Chronicle.

“But I am glad that he has spoken up and made public the information he had at his disposal. This will help to inject some justice into our very skewed system and put some perspective in the anti-Anwar propaganda churned out by the mainstream media on a daily basis. That is wholly unfair. What I can share with you is that Najib has always been someone who swings with the wind and win. And that says it all.”

Treachery most vile

However, Najib not only stood by, letting Anwar remain in jail and getting beaten up by a senior cop keen to please Mahathir, 10 years later in 2008, he and wife Rosmah had a ‘chat’ with a young man called Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

Two days after meeting Najib, who was then deputy prime minister and very anxious to sit in the PM’s chair, Saiful lodged a police report, accusing Anwar of sodomising him. It was a reprsal of the script Anwar accused Mahathir of writing in 1998, in which he had been accused of sodomising his wife’s driver. From prime minister-in-waiting, Anwar lost everything. His family was forced to shift out of their government quarters and he was forced to spend the next 6 years in jail.

It was only after Mahathir retired that the country’s federal court dared to overturn the manifestly fabricated sodomy charges against him.

But not only has history repeated itself in 2008, Najib too appears to have succumbed to the same dark forces that had guided Mahathir.

“Ask around Umno circles and you will hear this too. Najib has never been known to be loyal nor decisive. His political history is chequered with betrayals and opportunism beginning with his betrayal of Tengku Razaleigh in 1987,” PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli told Malaysia Chronicle.

“Najib will say anything to secure the post he wants, so I am not surprised by Malott’s disclsoure. It was an open secret. Everybody knew Mahathir sought Najib’s support after sacking Anwar and Najib let Anwar down even though he was part of Anwar’s Wawasan 2020 team. That is why he nearly lost his Pekan seat in the election after that.”

Indeed, when defending himself against the second-round of sodomy charges, Anwar said as much during open court on Monday.

"This entire process is nothing but a conspiracy by Prime Minister Dato' Seri Najib Razak to send me into political oblivion by attempting once again to put me behind bars. I therefore declare that I have no faith whatsoever that justice will prevail in these proceedings notwithstanding the valiant efforts made by my defence team. As I have said at the outset, this is not a criminal trial. It is a charade staged by the powers that be to put me out of action in order that they remain in power."

Sperma Tidak Mungkin Ditemui Dalam Rektum Selepas 90 Jam – Sankara

Posted: 24 Aug 2011 02:04 AM PDT

Video Ihsan Malaysiakini


Peguam Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Sankara Nair hari ini menegaskan sekali lagi beliau menolak penemuan DNA sperma dalam rektum pengadu, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, hampir 90 jam selepas ia dibawa ke makmal.

Sankara membuat kenyataan itu sewaktu membidas hujah Peguam Cara Negara II, Datuk Yusof Zainal Abiden yang memetik  kertas kajian daripada United Kingdom yang diterbitkan hampir 30 tahun dahulu, iaitu pada tahun 1982.

Yusof memetik kajian  itu dalam soal balasnya terhadap saksi pembelaan, pakar patologi forensik dari Australia, Dr David Wells pagi tadi.

Ketua pendakwaraya itu mendakwa kajian itu mendapati DNA sperma boleh ditemui dalam rektum manusia selepas hampir 65 jam air mani dilepaskan ke dalam rektum.

Sankara yang mengulangi kembali kenyataan Pakar Patologi Forensik Australia, Dr David Wells di dalam mahkamah, berkata eksperimen yang dirujuk Yusof itu dilakukan dalam keadaan terkawal.

Malah, penemuan yang sama tidak lagi berlaku kerana Dr Wells sendiri sepanjang profesionnya tidak berjaya menemui sebarang sperma selepas lebih 48 jam ia dikeluarkan.

"Ada satu eksperimen dalam makmal yang dijalankan dalam keadaan terkawal. Mereka menemui sperma selepas 65 jam sperma berada di dalam rektum.

"Namun, selepas eksperimen itu, tiada lagi sebarang penemuan yang mengesahkan perkara itu.

"Satu kes sahaja, tidak mewakili semua kes.

"Itu pun dalam eksperimen terkawal," kata Sankara.

Menurut Sankara, ia berbeza dengan keterangan Saiful yang mendakwa dirinya diliwat dan pada masa yang sama melakukan pelbagai aktiviti yang boleh menyebabkan kualiti sperma yang didakwa berada di dalam rektumnya merosot.

Malah, DNA sperma dari tubuh Saiful juga hanya dianalisa di makmal lebih daripada 90 jam selepas kejadian liwat didakwa berlaku.

"Di sini kejadian liwat didakwa berlaku. Dan sperma ditemui 90 jam selepas kejadian didakwa berlaku?! Tidak mungkin.

"Tetapi di sini pendakwa raya mendakwa menemui sampel sperma yang bagus (dalam dubur Saiful)," kata Sankara.

Justin Smith Steps Down From FBC Media board

Posted: 24 Aug 2011 01:46 AM PDT


Ben Smith and I report on the main site how The Atlantic has become the latest media company to get tangled in the scandal surrounding FBC Media, a British company on whose board Atlantic Media Co. President Justin Smith sat until the bad press moved him to resign.

The Atlantic is the latest media organization to launch an internal investigation into its connections with a British company that has provided editorial content on foreign subjects while doing public relations work for some of the same governments it was reporting on, a spokeswoman acknowledged to POLITICO.

In addition to the internal review, the magazine also said Justin Smith, president of Atlantic Media Co., has resigned from the board of FBC Media, the firm at the center of a controversy over whether it improperly mixed its journalism and PR businesses. It was Smith who connected FBC Media with The Atlantic.

The disclosure that FBC Media had a contract with the Malaysian government at the same time it was producing positive television segments about Malaysia for CNBC, BBC and other major broadcasters, led CNBC and BBC to pull all FBC Media-produced content and launch their own internal investigations in the past month.

The Atlantic is in a similar position because FBC Chairman Alan Friedman blogged about governments that may have been current or onetime FBC Media clients in his dispatches for The Atlantic from the World Economic Forum in Davos in January. Friedman also approached The Atlantic about hosting an event featuring his client, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak. The event, held in March, was moderated by Atlantic national correspondent James Fallows.

Smith has sat on FBC Media's board since 2007. He told POLITICO on Sunday that he informed Friedman two weeks ago of his desire to step down and was in the process of formalizing the request when POLITICO asked about it.

"The truth is that Alan Friedman has been a friend of mine for nearly twenty years," Smith said. "In light of this friendship and my past association with the company, I am very disturbed to learn of the serious allegations being raised about FBC and Alan's conduct. What I would particularly regret, should these accusations directed at FBC be proven true, is my role in having introduced Alan to The Atlantic's editors and event planners.

"I have directed a full review of The Atlantic's dealings with him, and the responsibility at The Atlantic for any problems it might uncover will be mine. It is my job to safeguard at all costs The Atlantic's reputation for editorial integrity."
